MOTHER HUCKER

Tracy Moseley has had the world as her playground, Pete Scullion finds out whether it’s all swings and roundabouts ahead now that she’s a mum and a rider.

There are few better places to talk shop with a multiple World Champion than over bolognese at the two and a half kilometre mark in the Swiss Alps. While my brain and lungs struggled to make sense of the thinning air, there’s a composure that comes with any physical exertion from a professional athlete of two decades.

Despite having not all that long ago become a mum, keeping ahead of our motley assortment of European journalists doesn’t seem to be troubling Tracy one bit. My prying questions are dealt with in a similar manner. Lack of fuss, matter of fact, and full of insight that any successful athlete would be able to muster, but in a manner that is uniquely Tracy Moseley.

When it comes to discussing riders who might well be the UK’s best, or the best ever, Tracy has certainly done her bit to make sure that she’s at the sharp end of that list. World Cup wins, World Championships, the first-ever British woman to win a World Cup, EWS Championships, British cross-country medals… The list of accolades is long enough.

WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHY PETE SCULLION

Chasing Rainbows.

The titles themselves are well documented, but what we know far less about is the approach, learning when things don’t go right, the parts of the job that aren’t super glamorous.
